DESCRIPTION: BizCamps are intensive, 1 or 2 week day camps for students ages 13-18 who are interested in entrepreneurship. As in a full-length NFTE program, BizCamp students come up with a business idea and then work to complete a business plan. At the end of the camp, students present their plans to a panel of judges for a chance to win seed capital. BizCamps take place during the summer, including at Rutgers Newark, or during school breaks. They are offered free of charge to all participants who meet household income requirements.
